161  Third party software and hardware support forums. / Newfangled Mill Wizard / Pointer to current version on: February 26, 2013, 07:46:14 PM
Welcome to the support forum for the Mill Wizard for Mach4. I expect to keep all the support issues on this forum.  Im sure there will be reports on teh Yahoo group as well, but I will try to steer them here, because we can post photos, screen shots and code here to better explain problems

The product description page for this wizard is at http://www.newfangledsolutions.com/mill_wiz.php

The download link is the normal Mach download page, http://www.machsupport.com/downloads.php

Note that Clearance is not an absolute value, but is a distance measure. One example, when doing a multi-pass pocket it moves up the clearance distance above a cut for the rapid move back to the start for the next pass. Also on the start of a cut it moves down from the rapid height to the clearance distance above the Ztop of material.

All the other values are absolute values based on the current coordinate system.

Ok, I see. I am afraid that screen is already badly overcrowded, so Id hate to be adding more buttons to it. I hope to be doing something lie it with the new mach4, and there we have a much larger choice of screen widgets. Maybe that can be worked in there.

Thanks for the feedback

I think you can. The Step X, Y, Z buttons all allow negative number entry, and the value in the DRO is simply added to the current position, so adding a negative number should work.

Let me know if this is not what you meant.

 Zdepth always means the final Z level, based on the current Z zero. It is not a measure from Ztop of work to the bottom of the cut. We did have some debates about this, and it led Todd to re-draw my Z depth screen images in a way we thought was more clear.

I was just using the wizards to make a part for a steam engine model. I thought it would be nice to enter a rectangle length or width as the absolute coordinate of the feature rather than the current length. The real problem I have with things like this is making the GUI clear enough. I could make entries for both forms, but how would I display it in a way guys would understand?

At the top of this page, under the ArtSoft banner you should see a box labeled Purchase. Click tha tbox and down near the bottom of the page that opens will be a purchase button. The wizards are called 'Add ons' and cost $50

You will be sent a license file by email. Save that file then copy it to the folder in which the MAch3.exe file is stored. On standard tormach installs I think that is C:\PCNC

Once the license file is loaded the wizards will save the gcode.

Mach4 will be a standalone program, as will the wizards for mill. Mill wizards are running now even before Mach4 is ready to be released.

There may be more wizards in the future that run as part of Mach4, much like the current Newfangled wizards. Brian showed me a demo of the screen designer and scripting language this week. Its going to be a much more capable system than we had in V3, so I expect a lot of great wizards, but its going to be a while yet- I dont think Mach4 with the full screen designer capability will be out for at least a few more months.

Great things are happening, its hard to wait for them.

Are you running a tormach version?  The powerfeed wizard has an init.m1s file in the folder under Addons\PowerFeedXY. That file has c:\mach3\ hard coded in it. That really should be a test for the program folder, not hard coded.

If you are running with the mach3.exe in a different folder edit the init.m1s file.

I will see if I can make a proper fix to that.

No, there is only one license. The wizards that check it are the newfangled suite, copycat, powerfeedxy and drillwiz. If it works with any one then its installed in the correct place, and a valid license. I cannot imagine a reason one wizard would work and another not work on the same machine.

I will look at the code for the powerfeed and see if I can find anything.

Did you buy a wizard license or a Mach license? For a wizard to run you must have both a mach liicense and a wizard license.

When you said  the "other wizard works" did you mean the Newfangled Suite?
